Jewish Leaders Call for Immigration Reform

EFE/Univision, Posted: Apr 08, 2009

WASHINGTON - Leaders of various Jewish traditions are calling on President Barack Obama to promote immigration reform this year, according to an EFE report on Univision. As part of the campaign "Progress by Passover" announced by Jewish organizations across the country leading up to the Passover holiday April 8 to 16, rabbis delivered a petition with 3,500 signatures to members of Congress.

Rabbi Morris Allen of the Conservative Movement in Minnesota said that the liberation of the Jews from Egypt, which is commemorated during Passover, has transformed the worldview of many Jewish people. "In less than a week, Jews around the world will meet to read stories about the first immigrants who were mistreated. These words remind us that we cant remain indifferent when similar situations occur today,"
said Allen.
